a lower tax rate than many low-income and middle-class americans? >> romney got caught up when the tax question came up, famously in south carolina, he said maybe, when asked if woe release more taxes. there needs to be some kind of tax question tonight because the reality is that a lot of folks don't earn very much money in places here like denver are paying a higher percentage of their income than romney. romney believes there should be lower rates for investments but hasn't explained why it is fair that he pays a lower rate. >> quick on your list of questions, many have been asked to the candidates at some point or certainly, prepared to answer. will you be stunned if the questions on the stimulus on the case of the president or taxes, to romney, go unanswered without the candidate being specific? >> well, i won't be surprised at all but the nice thing about a debate is that i think the moderator, jim lehrer, is going to take a step back and allow the clash between the candidates. i think if romney gives a nonanswer to that question we just talked about obama will say, no, answer th

after working class families. no republican has ever won the presidency without winning ohio. romney told nbc in an interview, i am going to win ohio, and in campaign rallies, he said i care about the people of america. he's been trying to focus on struggling families. meantime, president obama was going after the college crowd. today they are both in virginia, and both of these candidates focusing on the middle class. >> i don't know how many of you will be with me this time around -- [ cheers and applause ] but it doesn't matter because i'm running to be your president, to represent everybody. >> i think the president loves america. i love america. i think the president cares about the people of america. i care about the people in america. but i know how to help of america and make sure our future is bright and prosperous for our kids and protect liberty, and he does not! i know what it takes. >> moving forward to today, in virginia, they're in two different parts of the state. mitt romney is at the american legion in springfield in this area. the president will be down in virginia
class is shrinking and falling behind. under mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts, household income went up by 5000 old. -- went up $5,000. look at what president obama did on the budget. nothing except pro and spend. accept borrow and spend. as a result of his abdication of leadership and seeing the most predictable economic crisis in our history and not fixing it, our credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history. when mitt romney was governor, the credit rating on his state was upgraded. that is the kind of change we will get with the mitt romney presidency. [applause] we need to tackle our nation's challenges before they tackle us. we need to save and strengthen medicare and social security. you're putting ideas on the table of how to do that. we will not scare seniors. we will save the benefits for seniors and my generation so these promises are kept. we believe in strong national defense. we do not agree with the president's reckless defense cuts because we believe in peace through strength. [applause] in the live free or die state, we know t
said. >> the middle class has been buried by the same policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to go back to. you shouldn't be cutting taxes for those at the top and asked the middle class to talk about it. >> should mitt romney talk about that tonight or does he not go for the as we just heard major say, sort of responding to the video clip of the day? >> i agree with dan rather and major garrett were saying. the way and the manner in which you do this, you can disagree, but you don't want to be disagreeable. there's a real difference and a fine line there, but clearly, mitt romney is running because the prescription that president obama and joe biden have put forward over the last four years is failing this country and mitt romney will then articulate what he wants to do for the country moving forward. this one's focused totally on domestic policy. that will give the voters a great opportunity to see what the democratic line going back to bush and all that is simply not true. that is not what mitt romney is advocating. absolutely not. >> it is a domestic debate, although some
in this broadcast, we'll show you how romney is trying to connect to the middle class with this guy who does tv ads for some car outfit, and wears the hat and has his own show. and he's standing on the wrong stage. we'll get to that later. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, who's going to win ohio? text "a" for the president and text "b" for mitt romney to 622639 or go to ed.msnbc.com. joining me tonight, e.j. dionne of "the washington post," also an msnbc contributor, and author of "our divided political heart," and chris redford joins us tonight. e.j., you first. this is quite a mountain to climb for any campaign, whether it's mitt romney or anybody else. how is he going to be able to do it? >> well, i think he knows he's in a hole, because that ad you showed where he said, both of us care about middle class families, that was almost an entirely defensive ad. and that quinnipiac/"new york times" poll showed why. there was a question in there that asked, does obama, does romney care about the middle class, the rich, the poor, or everyone equally? most poll
to soften romney's image. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> he's sticking up for president obama. that's kind of cool, isn't it? romney hopes this video will have an impact. but there's another video affecting romney's campaign in a very much bigger way. >> and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> it is brutal. the hidden fund-raiser video where romney disparaged 47% of americans is not helping with swing voters. it's also hurting romney with his base. "the new york times" talked to a worker, kenneth myers, an unemployed republican from ohio. romney's comments didn't sit well with myers. "the last thing, where he was going on about the 47% who are dependent on the government is hard to swallow. i think i'm part of the 47% he's talking about. but i don't want to be dependent on the government." that's a pretty good indication of where that comment has taken this campaign. th
lifetime. now let's move on to the next hot topic, team romney needs to stay on the more take home pay middle class tax cut message and i think vice presidential candidate paul ryan has been listening to a few things i have had to say. take a watch. >> growth tax reform, it cuts tax rates by 20%, more take home pay for the middle class. that right there creates about 7 million jobs. >> sit enough, though? does mitt romney get it? our kudlow congress is going to come back in session and see if nick can make the break through. >>> welcome back to the kudlow report, i'm larry kudlow, in this half hour, hold your breath. if bush tax cuts are not extended, watch those popular home short sales being stopped short. that's very important, could cause a wave in foreclosures and another wave in the journey turn in housing. and if that doesn't scare you, it's the first monday in october. and the key issues this year, affirmative action, same sex action, will the john roberts supreme court continue to reshape the country in a liberal or conservative direction? that's what we need to know. 36 days
. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported. >> republicans like rubio are off to the races. >> those happen to be the words that the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he is the best thing we've got going, guys. >> reporter: now denver has always been big for this president. in 2008 is where he launched the hope and change in front of the great columns of the democratic convention. 2009. this is where he signed the stimulus in law. tonight, he puts it all on the line trying to make his case for a second term. bret? >> bret: ed, thank you. experts will tell you the challenger often gets a slight bump in the polls after the first debate by standing next to the president. romney is hoping for that and more as he takes half the spotlight tonight. chief political correspondent carl cameron has that part of the story. >> reporter: romney prepared for weeks. 57% for the latest gallup poll think the president will win the debates to only 33% for romney on this evening main topic the economy economy, romney has an edge. 50% s

agrieve this message. >> there is a analysts saying ads almost negative defined romney as antimiddle class and antiauto bailout. number of ads was overwhelming. there is a dealing -- feel sthag they didn't have to could do that and they're going to wait until the convention and afterwards. >> this scientists say the campaign was helped out by missteps. >> there are comments about the middle east. >> the campaign was trying to paint and there is another big advantage and there are swing states sat rated with candidates and there are stations required to give a discounted rate in last 60 days but this applies only to candidates. political parties and outside groups like super packs are not entitled. washington post reports if ohio there is a 30 second slot costing super packs $900 and there is much money romney raised has been from high dollar donors. >> there are people have to spend three, four five time as much then you've got only one third or a quarter or a fifth of number of ads you can run. >> there is a problem for the campaign. so there is a kraix there were other factors at play. t
class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need romney in denver, colorado. before we get to carl, we want to go to ed henry live with the president in las vegas tonight's. how is the prep going for the big deal tomorrow night? good evening. >> it's been hours of debate prep. it's been intense. they're being very tight lipped about what the president is doing to practice. but he tried to get out today from the resort he's staying at in henderson, nevada. he went to the hoover dam for the first time in his life. maybe get a fresh air or do thinking before tomorrow's first showdown face-to-face with mitt romney. interesting, you mentioned vice president biden was speaking for the president, kind of slipped up by suggesting the middle class has been buried the last four years. so he clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported as bill clinton said all they're suggesting when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. >> n
